My best girlfriend recently asked me to make a gift for her sister’s bridal shower. I love doing crafty projects so I happily agreed. My friend and her sister are both into baking, so the shower and the gift were to be kitchen themed. My friend gave me a quote/recipe that she wanted me to design and frame and asked if I was willing to create a recipe box, of course I jumped at the chance to practice my woodturning skills. Finally we decided that a custom apron would be the perfect finishing touch to the gift. My friend was very pleased with the outcome and I hope her sister will be as well. Creating homemade gifts for people is quite a rewarding experience, and I think it is more meaningful to the recipient when they see the care and thought that has gone into their present. I only hope that I will continue to grow creatively so I can take on more projects like this one in the future.
